A Gift of Hope: Leave a Legacy to Help Others Live at Their Best
Every new year brings with it fresh hope. It gives you a sincere feeling that the year to come will far surpass the year before. As we look ahead at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we see great hope for the continued health and well-being of our community.
Our commitment to our mission – to heal, comfort and care for the people of our community – is steadfast. As people in the Lehigh Valley continue to eat healthier, exercise more often, and take charge of their health, we are by their side, offering support, encouragement and care so they can be at their best. We are here for our community today and must plan for generations to come.
It is important to remember that we are the current beneficiaries of the generosity of past generations. While all gifts are extremely important and appreciated, we can think of extraordinary examples of legacy gifts like Pool, Anderson, Graham and Farr. And, we think about how impactful these legacy gifts are today.
We at LVHN want future generations to be wiser, stronger and healthier. To make this happen, our future leaders and clinicians must have the financial resources to remain steadfast in advancing our mission. One way we all can provide for the future health care of our community is by leaving a legacy gift to LVHN. When you include us in your will or estate plans, you are ensuring the high level of care you see today will be even better decades from now.
Leaving your legacy to our health network is easy. Here are a few ways for you to consider:
- Make a financial gift today that will provide for the future of health care at LVHN while also providing you with an income during your lifetime.
- Include a portion or percentage of your assets as a gift in your will to LVHN.
- Establish a charitable trust that will allow your money to work for you during your lifetime and create a legacy for our community in the future.
Regardless of the method, when you establish a legacy gift at LVHN, you will be recognized today and become a member of the 1899 Society, named to commemorate the opening of The Allentown Hospital.
Leaving a legacy gift will give you the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people live at their best for generations to come. We hope you will consider leaving your “mark” on the future and we thank you for your consideration.
